Progeny Dental, Inc., manufacturer of intra-oral dental imaging systems, announced today that it has acquired Scottsdale, Arizona-based Cygnus Technologies, a leading manufacturer of intraoral cameras, multi-media software, and digital X-ray systems.
Progeny Dental entered the dental imaging scene April 2002 with the introduction of the JB-70, an intra-oral dental X-ray system that provides increased productivity, ease of use and exceptional design. The JB-70 was developed by a team of world class dental imaging professionals brought together by Progeny and is earning enthusiastic acceptance from dental professionals for both aesthetics and functionality.
"Progeny Dental is committed to growth through products that demonstrate exceptional quality, functionality and value," said CEO, Ed McDonough. "Cygnus Technologies is a leader in high-value dental imaging technology, with a strong focus on digital expertise. The addition of their capabilities strengthens our position as a manufacturer of innovative dental products and provides us with an outstanding line of intra-oral cameras, multi-media software and digital imaging systems. The acquisition will allow us to support our customers with a complementary range of imaging products, as well as enter new markets through Cygnus' strong international presence."
Cygnus Technologies products are sold worldwide and include portable intraoral cameras, digital X-ray systems, digital imaging software and digital dental camera kits. Cygnus products are installed and used in more than 12,000 dental offices worldwide.
"Cygnus has been a leading innovator in the dental industry for nearly two decades," stated Egidio Cianciosi, President of Cygnus Technologies. "We were the first to introduce many of the technologies and features that are now commonplace in dental imaging. It is our shared dedication to both technical advances and product value that makes this acquisition such an excellent step for both our companies. We are excited to be part of the rapidly growing Progeny Dental organization."
